Pastel Pearl Snaps

Jeanine Twigg- owner of The Snap Source, is our guest blogger today with an exciting new product line!

The Snap Source, Inc. is pleased to announce the addition of the Size 16 Pearl snaps in 2010. SewBaby will exclusively host these new additions that are a cute as can be in never before seen Pastel Pink, Pastel Blue, Mint Green and Pale Yellow colors. These new snaps are perfect for any type of fabric, but especially precious for your little ones in SewBaby's fabrics of choice -- such as the pink and blue gingham flannel, blocks/bear anti-pill fleece or any of the wonderful knit baby prints. Use these snaps with the new Size 16 Pearl Tool Adapter with the size 16 SnapSetter tool to set the snaps to any one of SewBaby's wonderful snappy patterns or Fleece Easy Baby Wardrobe pattern, their wonderful Wonder Jacket or even the adorably cute Petal Dress. Any one of the SewBaby patterns works great with the Snap Source snaps especially these cute new Size 16 Pearl Snaps.

Why the need for the a Size 16 Pearl Tool Adapter? The delicate pearl snap top! The Size 16 SnapSetter tool base has a flattened radius where the snap goes for the open and capped prong ring snap. For the higher dome of the pearl and to protect the delicate nature of the insert, I developed a tool adapter to work with the SnapSetter. The cost is $3.25 and it will protect the pearl from cracking when being set.

Enjoy these cute little pearls and let us know how you like them on your projects!

What to Wear in Madagascar

To be honest, I have no idea what to wear in Madagascar, and this title may need to be changed to "what NOT to wear in Madagascar" in a few months.  We will have to wait and see.  My 22 year old daughter, Alyssa, left for the Peace Corps this week, and she will be stationed in Madagascar for the next 2 years and 3 months.  Yes, you read that right- TWO YEARS and three months!!! We are very proud of her for wanting to help make the world a better place, and for being fearless in doing so, but it will be a looooong time for Mama and Papa back home. Not knowing anything about Madagascar, the first step in figuring out what to pack was to figure out the weather and the cultural norms.  Madagascar is a very large island off the southeastern coast of Africa.  It's very, very unique in it's ecosystem, and has many species that are not found anywhere else in the world- most famously lemurs. Right now, it is experiencing it's rainy season, as you can see by the

Vogue 9305 Asymmetrical Tunics

It's April and we're expecting snow tonight.  Have we switched hemispheres?  Nevertheless, I am sewing with visions of warm sunny days.  And for those warm sunny days to come, I imagine sitting in the shade with a light breeze flowing through the air, enjoying a light beverage with friends.  Just close your eyes and you can imagine too.  What would you be wearing?  Well,  I love a dramatic asymmetrical tunic made of the softest linen.  As luck would have it, I found just the fabric in the "As Is" section in Fabric Mart's sales category.  With just some irregular dye marks on the selvage, it was marked down, but still completely usable.  It started out as a solid color, but I did an ombre dip dye process to get this look- more on that later! For my pattern, I chose Vogue 9305 , a tunic with a shaped hemline, and two styles of pants (I didn't make the pants).   This pattern must be the biggest bang for your time possible.  The tunic went tog

Style Arc Dotty Blouse and Burda 6879 Skinny Pants

Listen children.  It's time for a sewing story.  Sit by the fire with me, and I'll tell you the story of how three flat, lifeless pieces of fabric became my new favorite winter outfit. With a little help from the elves at FabricMart, Burda, and Style Arc, I whipped up this outfit just in time for the holidays. Chapter 1.  The Dotty Blouse Silk charmeuse.  Aahhhh.  Just the thought of it brings me bliss.  Is there anything so light as a feather, shimmery as a star, fluid as a mountain stream?  All wrapped up in one glorious fabric.  Sometimes I look at the prices of clothes in the stores, and wonder "Why am I sewing? ".  But one touch of silk charmeuse and I remember. This is the stuff that you can't buy a top made from for less than $200, but you can make it for $50 or less. When I saw this stylized animal print silk charmeuse at FabricMart, I grabbed up 3 yards of it right away.  One of silk charmeuse's best qualities is it's drapa
